QUARION

Berlin-based, Swiss-born QUARION has produced and played with a wide variety of musicians since the late nineties. First, crafting skilful beats and samples for hip hop MC's, then shaping versatile tech house grooves as Enterplay with Geneva's Rosario and Japan's Force Of Nature producer DJ Kent, or with jazz keyboardist Leo Tardin. As Ianeq also put out a stellar 12'' with Snax on Get Physical and if you asked a 90's clubber, he would be remembered as the fine drum & bass DJ he used to be.

Nowadays Quarion's remixes breathe fresh air into already influential house and techno cuts, as evidenced on the best-selling Kompakt, DJ-Kicks and CD series. Tracks by Dirt Crew, Agnes, Chaton, Oliver Deutschmann, John Daly and others have been reworked and shot into orbit while his take on Jamie Lloyd's "May I?" and Jagged's "Hello Kool Nice" were paraded by world-class DJs.

These frequent flyers have been charting Quarion's own productions since half a decade, when the likes of Rainer Tr├╝by and Lars Behrenroth repped his superb, housey broken beat "Reset" EP done as Ianeq. That jazz and hip hop background still transpired through Quarion's "Karasu", heavily endorsed by Ame and Dixon, while his admiration for dub grooves and Detroit techno deepness (or vice-versa) blossomed into a timely contribution to them. Having early on released a stunning tribute to Mad Mike entitled "The Light", touring with Motor City ambassadors Theo Parrish and Omar-S was a natural fit.

A moody yet gregarious soul, Quarion has co-founded the Retreat imprint and is a member of Drumpoet Community, both of these labels being his favourite outlets for the widescreen, uplifting house with instrumental flourishes he creates today. By now a well-heeled alumni of high end clubs such as Watergate in Berlin, Goa in Madrid, Rex in Paris, Zukunft in Zurich or tours of Australia, USA and Japan, Quarion takes the stage for a soulful DJ set or one of his always renewed, semi-improvised live performances with the same determination and hopeful inspiration he already blew into his sax and scratched his vinyl with as a teenager. Music casts a spell on all of us through people like him.
